We noticed in our last issue, that the examina

They trminatfl with the public exhibition at
the Fort street Church, on Thursday evening.
The following statement of the committee ap
pointed to report on the examination, will furnish
the most impartial and satisfactory account of
the proceedings that can be given by ua :
To the Truxlttt of Ouhu College:
G3TLME.f : Tbe subscribers, having had the
honor of being appointed a Committee of Examina
tion to attend tbe Annual Examination of the pupils
connected with Oahu College, tbe present yetr, beg
to submit the following; report :
Most of the members cf the committee were present
throughout the entire examination, rf the various
c!aeee, which occupied the whole of Tuesday aiid
Wclneday lat. and all had the pleasure of listening
to the performances of the pupil iu vocal music atid
declamation, on tbe etening of Thursday.
Tbe several clasaes, with very few exceptions, esta
blished satisfactorily their character for general
excellence. Tbe proficiency displayed by the ad
vanced pupils in tbe Ancient Ciaaics was highly
The classes in Botany and Astronomy, which are
both new branches of study at tbe Institution, bare
made rapid progress.
Tbe botanical specimens collected by the former,
gave pleasing evidence that the pupils had endeavored
to verify and illustrate tbe teachings of tbe bocks,
by practical observation in the field of nature, a
course from which tbey have, no doubt, reaped much
advantage, both physically and mentally. The Com
mittee are happy to observe that tbexe, and other
kindred branches of instruction so well calculated
to elesrtte aod improve tbe minds of tbe pupils Ij
the study of God's works, are receiving, from the
teachers that amount of attention which tbey deserve.
This is as it should be. Let the scholars pursue.
ith zeal, their researches through the boundless
field of Creation, for. as they proceed, they will find
on every hand ever.recarritig marks of wisdom.
power and love, affording new incentives to aJmira-
tton, reverence and praise.
Tbe tborouKhnena manifested by tbe class exam
ined in Ancient Ilisttry was complete, while the
class in Milton displaced a gratifying acquaintance
with a highly intetesting portion of tbe wotks of that
great master among old Euglifh Classics. The Com.
miitee recommeud to I he further attention of tbe
I'rofearors tbe study of English Literature.
Tbe several clasrea in Mathematics maintained a
high position. The Committee fere no less surprised
by tbe novelty of the eshilition made by tbe class
of young ladies in Conio Sections, than by the degree
of quickness and perfect knowledge of the work which
tbey bad attained.
Tbe drawings, with which the walls of the class
room were so tastefully auoruetl during tbe day of
examination, bore abundant testimony to the taste of
tbe drawers, and a few of tbeui exhibited a high
degree of skill in the art.
A considerable number of original compositions
were delivered by tbe pupils of both sexes, on a
variety of subjects. Many of these were alike credit
able to the hetds and hearts of the authors ; and
some of them, composed by the more advanced,
showed genius as well as culture.
Among tbe subjects worthy of particular notice.
the Committee desire especially to mention the pro
nV ocj attained by the iupi!s ia Vocal Maiic This
deserves tbe highest praise, as must be attested by
the numerous and delighted audience who listened to
tbe perform nace on Thursday evening. The im
provement here durinjr the post year is decidedly
great, and reflects much credit on the present l'ro
feasor. wboee province it is to teach tbe eleeaut
accomplishments of musie and the French language,
and who baa successfully developed tbe naturally
fine vocal powers of the stuJents.
The whole xamination proved, satisfactorily, the
care and industry of the pupil, as well as tbe pains
taking and thoroughness of the Professors, bearing
tbe genuine frails of real labor, and not of special
preparation for the occasion.
Tbe Committee desire to recommend to tbe particu
lar attention of tbe Trustees and the faculty as a sub
ject worthy of constant care, the physical well-being
of tbe pupils. As a counterpart to the pleasing and
healthful exercises of Calisthenics, practised by tbe
yoang ladies, tbe Committee would respectfully
recommend tbe adoption of some stated exercise for
the youog gentlemen, not of a character which
might prove exhausting or over straining, bat such
as might famish agreeable relaxation from mental
application, while it bracea the nerves and improves
the carriage of tbe individual. In what form this
migbt bert be attained whether in the shape of
military drill or otherwise, the Committee leave to
tbe judgment of the Guardians of the Institution.
In conclusion, tbe Committee desire to say that
the practical management of the Institution is evi
dently in competent hands. It is rapidly attaiuing
a standing which ought to render it deer o the
hearts of tbe entire community. Never was aid iore
worthily bestowed upon any publio object thau that
no liberally given to ' Oahu College" by the Hawai
ian Government- While congratulating tbe patents
of the rising generation, and tbe friends of education
generally, upon tbe establishment and maintenance
of Punahou. until it has arrived at a position lar
exceeding the moet sanguine hopes of its earliest pro
jectors, we confidently bespeak for it tbe hearty
support of alL

The Rhetorical Exercises, on Thursday even
ing, drew out a large audience, and the Fort
street Church, in which they were held, was
crowded t cxcesn, many being unable to find
even a place to stand up. A temporary ctage
had been erected over the pulpit, on which,
besides the faculty and trustees of the College,
we observed Her Majesty the Queen, His Ex.
Chief Justice Allen and lady, 1 1 is Kx. D. L.
Gregg, His Kx. Thos. J. Dryer, the Hon. A.
Caldwell, U. S. Consul, and others. The decora
tions of the house were very appropriate. On
the wall back of the pulpit, hung the portraits cf
Their Majfties, with the motto, " God blew our
King and Queen," worked in evergreen and sur
rounded with wreaths and &wer. The decla
mations, though well-delivered, did not appear
to equal, in spirit and in their effect on the audi
ence, those of the two previous years. This
may be owing in part to the lack of some decla
mation or dialogue of a lively character, intro
duced into the evening's programme. Among
the pieces which elicited special commendation,
was the Trial of Popular Government," by
Albert B. Lyons, which, from its apt allusions
to events of the day, drew out frequent ap
plause. " Eloquence," by Henry Thompson,
was well composed and well delivered, and affords
another proof that the Anglo-Hawaiian mind,
under the same privileges and tutelage, is capa
ble of equalling if not surpassing that of the
pure foreigner. This oration was an bouor to
the speaker and the institution with which he is
connected. Cole's Voyage of Life," an original
poem by V. II. Rogers, was a composition of
eoecial merit, and drew out warm applause. We
insert this poem on our last page, and those of
oar readers who have seen Cole's fiur pictures,
which it undertakes to describe, will concede
that the Voyage of Life" is most graphically
The singing, however, was the special attrac
tion of the evening. The improvement in this
branch was very marked in the performance of
the opening chorus, " Norma Cometh ;" but
when the solo and chorus of " Vira Amino.'1
from the Somnambula of Bellini, were given, it
was still more noticeable. The solo was sung by
Miss Mary Cooke, whose singing took the audi
ence wholly by surprise. Her voice possesses a
melody and flexibility seldom met with, and her
singing, as exhibited in this piece, in the French
song, OA, Pobcrt, toi que fame," and in
ll'ippij and Light," (in all which she performed
the soloo.) seemed more the warbling of a night
engale, than the effort of a human voice. The
Misses Ilo!J.?n, in the duet, When lhaven is
char" also exhibited sweet and well-trained
voices. In all the pieces sung during the even
ing, the time was perfect, though the choruses
were performed by upwards of twenty young
ladies and gentlemen. 1 bis change and contrast
the skillful training of Prof. Haisslocber, who
has charge of the classes in singing arid Frvuch
in the College, and who justly merits all the
praise bestowed on him. The public of Hor.o-

The Pacific Railroad Bill passed the House of
Representatives on the 6th of May, by a large
majority. It has not yet passed the Senate, but
it is confidently asserted that it will without
much delay, and will also receive the sanction of
the President. Once a law, its provisions will
be hastened, so that the work can be begun and
t-nrried forward, with an impetus which no simi
lar undertaking has ever met with.

excellent a preceptor as Prof. H., to whose care
ful and patient training alone is due the ni ;rit of
developing so great an improvement as was noticed
both at the examination and exhibition, and we
trust they may long be permitted to enjoy his
services, and will also avail themselves of them.

On Friday evening, there was a very pleasant
reunion at the College, when between two and
three hundred of the friends and pupils of the
Institution assembled. During the evening, Mrs.
Mills' Calisthenical class of young ladies went
through their well-drilled exercises, with a pre
cision and regularity in their movements, alike
creditable to the teacher and the pupils. The
suggestion in the report of the Examining Com
mittee is a good one that some system of exer
cise for the lads should be introduced. Gymnas
tics have to some extent been practiced during
the past year at the Colbge, but not as a regular
branch of instruction, nor under a professional
gymnast. In Prussia, by a recent enactment,
thorough gymnastic training is made a part of
the educational course in all the public schools.
Whenever the same regulations can Ikj introduced
into our select and public schools, the lienefits to
be derived by the scholars will be greatly increased.

As we anticipated in our last issue might lc the
case, the Lotus had a long passage of twenty days,
having met only calms and light airs on the
passage down. The news brought by her reaches
to May 11 from San Francisco, and Washington
May 9 ; and embraces telegraphic dispr.t'-'hes
from M:iy 1st to Oth. From all quarters of the
Seat of War, the news is favorable to the Union
cause, which is moving steadily onward in the
great task of putting dow n the rebellion, as fast
as its magnitude and the elements (rain and
mud, which have impeded rapid progress) will
In Virginia, Yorktown was evacuated by the
Rebels, 100,000 strong, with 400 pieces of artil
lery, headed by Jeff. Davis and Gens. Johnston
and Magruder, on Saturday night. May 3, and
was occupied by the Federal army early on the
following morning, which continued its pursuit
of the retreating rebels, till they were overtaken
at Williamsburg, a village about eight miles
back of Yorktown, on Monday, May 5, where a
battle was fought between 30,000 Union and
about 40,000 Rebels, resulting in a complete Bull
Run rout of the latter. The details of this
news will le found on the next page. At the
latest dittcj from that quarter, M'Clellan was
hurrying forward his troops, by means of trans
ports, up the York River to West Point, the
head of navigation hoping to cut off the retreat
ing rebels, and compel them to surrender ; but
the probability was that the latter would escape
to Richmond. From West Point to Richmond,
is about 34 miles, connected by railroad, and the
next news will undoubtedly chronicle the capi
tal of rebel do m beseiged if not taken.
From New Orleans, we have full confirmation
of the occupation of that city and its entire re
lease from the thraldom of the relicllion. It
appears that the vessels that composed the expe
dition were prepmred with extraordinary care for
the difficult task, their sides being protected with
chain cables and bales of wet hay, against which
the shots from the forts struck harmless. They
were also armed with the terrible Parrot guns,
and steel-pointed shot, which it is said will pene
trate iron-plate8 of any thickness and demolish
the strongest stone walls of forts. The reliels
acknowledge that their shots did the fleet no
barm, while the shots from the fleet spread
death and destruction in the forts, sunk the rebel
iron-clad gunboat Louisiana, and swept every
thing before them. Gen. Butler's forces now
occupy the city, having entered from Lake Poii
chartrain. The port has been proclaimed open
to the commerce of the world, the blockade re
moved, a Union collector of customs appointed,
and the prospect now is that the trade of New
Orleans with the rest of the world will be speed
ily resumed. The Federal gunboat and mortar
fleet hud gone up the Mississippi River, and at
the latest advices was near Yicsburg, some 200
miles north of New Orleans, where it is thought
they might find some resistance, as it is a strong
position and there are several forts there. But
so powerful is this fleet that it will be able to
and will clear that river of every craft that floats
the rebel flag. In short, in three months, the
free navigation of the Mississipp i will be re
stored, and the 1G00 steamers, which, lor the
last twelve months, have been laid up on that
river useless, under the blockade, will again en
liven her shores.
From Corinth, we expected to hear of some
fighting, but the rainy weather which had pre
vailed had delayed advances. At the latest dates,
however, (May 8,) the hostile forces were but
two miles apart, and an engagement could not
be long delayed, especially as Gen. Hal leek is
reported to bo eager for the contest. Among the
news received, are the details of the losses in the
battle of Pittsburgh Landing. The exact loss of
the Federal army, in killed, wounded and prison
ers, was 13,575. The report first received was a
loss of 15,000. For a rough estimate this was
not far out of the way. The rebel losses in the
same battle were 4,000 killed and 12,000 wound
ed, making a total of 10,000 or nearly 30,000
on both sides. The number encased in the bat
tie was not far from 140,000. This is, by all
odds, the bloodiest battle of the war, as yet
Since the capture of Fort Macon, N. C, by
the Burnside Expedition, which occurred during
the latter part of April, we see no reference to
Gen. Burnside's movements ; but judging from
the celerity be has thus far shown in them, we
shall not be surprised to hear that he has under
taken to look into the condition of Norfolk or
Richmond by knocking at the back door. At
the latest advices Norfolk was trembling in ex
pectation of him, while the rebel seat of govern
ment has, through fear of attack, been removed
from Richmond to Danville, 123 miles southwest,
the two places being connected by rail and tele
graph. The telegraph reports that the commander of
the rebel forces at Savannah, Georgia, has an
nounced his intention to surrender to Com. Da
pont. By this it may be inferred, though there
is no news received to that effect, that the latter
has demanded a surrender from the authorities
of that city, and the federal aimy is ere this
occupying the place.
The British steamer Bermuda, and several
The work before the House of Representatives
progresses as rap idly as can be expected, and by
the time the Bubjet t of voting the supplies of the
government comes up, most of the minor bills
will be out of the way. On the 8th of May,
the House, through its Committee on Elections,
decided that there had leen no bribery in the
Labaina elections. It will be remembered that
the Polynesian and its protege the Jloku Palipika,
made a great deal of noise on this subject, and
some of their supporters went so far as to bring
a suit against the two memliers elected from that
district, the judge at Lahaina deciding that one
of the parties was guilty. After examining 17
witnesses, the House decides that there is no evi
dence of bribery. There ought to have been
some more pungent expression of its opinion
against the wanton suit brought by defeated
rivals and their abettors, whose only object was
to impugn the character of the members elect.
The linger of publ scorn cannot be pointed too
sharp.ly at such persons.
A very 6ingalar bill, granting a monopoly to
the Hawaiian Steam Navigation Company for 12
years, came up before the House on the same day
(28th,) and was referred to a Select Committee,
which has not yet reported. The bill asks for
various privileges, and in addition, a subsidy for
carrying the mails, of $3,000 per annum for each
of the three steamers, or 9,000 a year towards
their suppmrt. Such an extraordinary proposi
tion will arrest public attention. We want to
see steamers established here, if the commerce of
the group will sustain them, without any mono
poly, but do not think that the sailing coasters
ought to be sacrificed in any efforts to favor
8'caui. Let cacli enterprise stand on its own
bottom aod merits. The example of England in
subsidizing her various lines of steamers, it must
be admitted, affords a strong argument to the
advocates of the bill ; but the two nati ns do
not furnish exactly parallel cases. A law of
this nature ought not to be passed without a full
discussion of tlie probable results. We refer our
readers to the discussion on it.
A bill modifying the present wholesale liquor
law has passed the Lower House. It allows
wholesale dealers to sell in quantities of one gal

On Thursday last, the famous Koolau election
case came up, tbe two candidates claiming a seat,
each having a certificate. The House concluded
that it could not decide which was the best man,
and sent them both away to appeal again to their
devoted constituents. Next week another election
will bo held there. A law was immediately
brought in, which has been piassed, amending the
election law, and providing that when more votes
are found in the box than names registered, the
inspectors shall withdraw the surplus number in
the mode prescribed in the Act.
The Appropriation bill was yesterday reported
by the Finance ( omniittee, and will soon come
before the House for discussion, furnishing staple
for any amount of patriotic effusion and bun
comb. Wo understand that it has been materi
ally changed from what it was when presented
by the Minister of Finance, and that the prun-
iug-knife has lieen freely applied in items where
the Cabinet bad not the courage to make inci
sions. All that the public ask for is that the
expenses le reduced only to the limit which pro
priety and the revenue of the State sanction.
Tub Umox Fokev Ea. Oa Saturday evening, tbe
residence of Mr. H. A. P. Catter, on Emma street,
was Ulurniuated iu honor of tbe entry of Gen. M'Clel
lan and his forces into Yorktown, tbe news of which
was receive! that d tv bj the Lotus. We noticed a
transparency cn vihioU was inscribed Williams
burg." IsIinJ No. 10." Corinth," "Yorktown."
M'Cleilau and HtMeck." The choir of the Fort
street Church cnnie in during the evening and snug
several nttional airs, anion); them The Star Span
gled B..nt;er," "Hail Columbia," Uucle Sam's
Farm," &c. ka. These litt'e outbursts show that
love for the old Union and her fhg flows deep io the
veins of ber sons aad daughters even heve in Hono
lula; and such news as the rebel retreat from York
town, aud the battle and stampede of Williamsburg,
touches chords which can't help vibrating. Let us
hive a Fourth of July celebration this year worthy
of the L'niou cau?e and of tbe hour.
More tisf. Shkei. The brigantioe Emma from
Germany, brought another lot of 6ne-wooled Merino
sheep to Messrs. Hoffschlaeger & Stapenhorst.
There are twelve of them, eight rams and four ewes,
all yoang, and are among the finest animals that
have ever been brought here. Most of them have
been purchased to improve the large Socks of Messrs.
Wyllie and Alien, on the Island of Kahoolawe. A
few years will show as fine flocks of choice Merino
sheep on the Sandwich Islands, as can be found in
any other part of the globe, whish will, we trust re
sult ia increasing our export of this staple.
Serenades. After the reception at Punahou on
Friday evening, a large prty of enthusiastic ad
mirers, who had listened to the singing at the exhibi-
tion on the previous evening, among whom were
several of our best musicians, assembled opposite the
residence of Mr. A. S. Cooke, and after singing a
number of songs, three cheers were proposed and
given for the " Queen of Song." They then pro
ceeded to the residence of Mrs. Armstrong,. where
three cheers wee also given for the " Nightengale of
Oitside. Doirt fail to read the interesting letter
of " Egomet" on our first page, nor the beautiful
poem of " The Voyage of Life," on the last page.
The young author of this poem can desire no higher
testimonial to the merit of his literary production
than the request made by Her Majesty the Queen to
be furnished with a copy of it.
FfBiors RmiNO. A day or two since, a native.
named Kake, rode over another named Apiki, on
Waikiki plains, breaking his collar and breast bone.
He is now at the Queen's Hospital. Kake had a
hearing before the Police Court, but was remanded
for farther trial until the extent of injuries sustained
by Apiki can be ascertained.
Bi-RXEi to Death. A fire occurred on the night
of May 15, at a siimll village near Kawaihae, Hawaii,
by which three thatch houses were consumed. In
one of them, a woman and girl were sleeping, who
were so badly burned that they both died in cou se

NOTES OF TIIK WEEK.
Extbf.melt Annoyinc. Last Saturday, the clip
per ship Lotus, Capt. Leckie, entered the port, to
leave our mails and obtain what freight and passen
gers miht be haJ here. Soon after her arrival, Capt.
L. found it reported that bis vessel was likely to be
seized on account of some alleged violation of the
customs regulations, during his stoppage at this
port in December last. On searching for the
grounds of complaint, it was found that the Polyne
sian newspaper was the author of it, having in its
issue of leo. li, inserted the following item regard
ing the Lotus.
Tbviso it on. We hist week noticed that the
whaleship .Uontreul, Capt. Soule, came down t this
port and transacted business without entering and
clearing his ship according to law. Last veek tbe
American merchant ship Lotus, Capt. Leckie, from
San Francisco, arrived at this port and took off pas
sengers, contrary to Section 651 of the Civil Code.
We do not for a moment imagine that either of those
Captains were ignorant of tbe laws of this Kingdom,
having often visited this port on former voyages.
But if tbey were, it was manifestly their business
to make themselves acquainted. We regret their
negligence or bravado, aud hope that similar acts
will not again be tried on. Polynesian.
So far as the above refers to tbe Lotus, we are re-
j quested by Capt. Leckie to say that it is entirely
false, and that be took off neither freight nor passen
gers, and consequently considered it was unnecessa
ry for him to enter or clear the customs, though he
bad taken off a little water. When his vessel bad
got under way, be observed a bag on board which
appeared to be fungus, but on inquiry, it proved to
be a bag of pulu purchased here by a California
Chinese passenger to sleep on during the passage to
Hongkong. But even this could hardly have given rise
to the malicious report published in the Polynesian
Oa Tuesday last, Capt. Leckie went to clear bis ship
at the cu turns, but was refused, and as might rea
sonably be expected, was somewhat incensed. On
! referring his case to tbe Minister of Finance, a
clearance was ordered to be given to the ship, as
there appeared to have been no intention to evade
tbe customs regulations, nor any evidence that tbey
had been violated. We very much regret the occur
rence of this misundeistauding with a Captain who
has for years been in tbe habit of touching and
j leaving our mails. It is attributable solely to the
j false report of the Polynesian. Scarcely a num
ber of that paper is issued in which there does not
appear some statements of a similar character, tend
ing to injure our port or its interest, and to lewer
itself in public estimation. We have followed them
up and exposed them till we are ashamed of the un
welcome task. And now, as if not cm tent with its
former efforts, it resorts to hold-faced type to
attract public attention to its bold-faced misstate
ments. So long as that paper is conducted as at
present, the publie and captains visiting tbis port
must expect such annoying insults from if.
i i chk Department. The election on Tuesday eve-
! ning resulted in the choice of A. J. Cartwright, Esq.,
! for Chief Engineer; W. Duncan, Esq., for 1st Assist
ant; and J. Hopper, Esq., for 2d Assistant; by an
almost unanimous vote.
